Make It Vancouver

Tags: 

Hi friends,

Spring has been off to a crazy start.  For me it started with a cold, which turned into a flu, which then turned into a sinus infection... Which (thanks to a heavy dose of antibiotics) went away just in time for my trip to Edmonton for the Make It Show! Edmonton has always been so good to me and it was so great to be back.  So for those of you that visited me at the show last month - thank you!  (Also, you might want to stay tuned for an announcement about our return to Whyte Ave!... assuming it goes as planned!)

Now its nearly time for Make It Vancouver to begin and while it seems I'm fighting another cold (yeah, another one!) I'm still pumped and ready for a great show!  We'll be back at the PNE Forum Friday, April 21st to Sunday, April 23rd with a bunch of other awesome creators/designers/artists.  You'll be bummed if you miss out on the awesomeness that is Make It.

So when I was in Edmonton my coasters were a HUGE hit and so I knew I needed to add some new ones to the lineup.  Check them out in person if you're in the Vancouver area, or find them here next week.  I've also restocked the soldout ones, which you'll see reflected on the site next week.

 

Oh shit, I almost forgot - Mother's Day is coming up pretty quick here, so you might want to considering buying your mom/wife/mom-type-person a card now so you have time to work up the courage to give her something so hilarious she might pee herself a little.

Make It Edmonton and Vancouver

Hey folks! If you're in Edmonton or Vancouver you should come check us out at the Make It Show!  What's the Make It Show you ask?  Well, Make It is an awesome craft show consisting of about 200 exhibitors that make and sell various items... there's everything from baby clothes to men t-shirts and jewelry to packaged soups!  Of course we're there with our collection of greeting cards and magnets, but there are SO many other awesome items to check out as well!

First up is Edmonton, which starts on Friday and runs until Sunday.
It's at the Northlands Expo Centre and costs $5 at the door (kids 12 and under are free)

Friday, Mar. 24, 11am – 9pm
Saturday, Mar. 25, 10am – 6pm
Sunday, Mar. 26, 11am – 5pm

If you're thinking of going, save the coupon shown here or if you  KNOW that you're going, you can buy early-bird tickets here.

Then next month we'll be in Vancouver for the Make It Vancouver Show, which runs April 21-23 at the PNE Forum!

Friday, Apr. 21, 11am – 9pm
Saturday, Apr. 22, 10am – 6pm
Sunday, Apr. 23, 11am – 5pm

For those of you that aren't in Vancouver or Edmonton, our apologies - those are the only 2 cities that we'll be visiting this Spring! (Sorry Toronto, we just couldn't get the One of a Kind Show to fit into our schedule) BUT, the good news is you can buy everything online!
 

Steak and a Blowjob Day

Tags: 

Hey fellas, did you spoil your partner last month on Valentine's Day? Perhaps it's time to subtly remind them that today is Steak and a Blowjob Day! It falls every year on March 14th... Exactly one month after Valentine's Day, how about that?!  And if they don't believe you, show them this post... We're a stationery company, we wouldn't make up a holiday for crying out loud!

Today is also Pi Day (as in 3.14159) and whenever I think about Pi I can't help but sing this little diddy...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NgjkwQ-7lY

Valentines Day

Tags: 

Apologies for any of you that are/were waiting on orders or return emails.  Things have been a little crazy around here as Mother Nature dumped nearly 90 centimeters of snow on my little town, followed by a storm that brought wind and freezing rain...  But, the power is back on, the icicles have fallen and the snow is slowly turning to slush.  So we're back to our normal work schedule.

So, Valentine's Day is just 4 short days away and if you haven't already purchased your Hug and Kiss Designs Valentine's Day card from us, I'm sad to say you've missed that boat!  Though, luckily there are several retailers out there that stock their shelves with our cards, so you'll have to check in with them!

But before we celebrate Valentine's Day, we get to celebrate the return of The Walking Dead!  We're huge fans around this office, so the return of the show after a mid-season break is WAY more exciting than Valentine's Day!  Have you seen our Walking Dead Fan Art?

BIRTHDAY MONTH

Tags: 

This month we're so excited to turn TEN YEARS OLD!  Can you believe it? Somehow people have enjoyed our sense of humour long enough for us to last an entire decade!

We have a bunch of deals in store for this month and first up we've decided to celebrate our wholesale accounts (with an awesome offer)... So if you are the owner or buyer for one of our retailers, please check your email (a note was sent this morning) or contact us for details!

For the rest of you folks (ie. non-wholesale customers), stay tuned because the deals for you start after January 18th!

So, at the risk of sounding totally mushy and lovey, if you're reading this we fucking love you!
